of defenses and arguments you see in the federalists today? who writes them? who sits at home and drafts arguments we see, letters, you see -- you never [inaudible] these were people who were engaged and knew the constitution and these were not scholars. these were not people who had appropriated to themselves license, the soul license to interpret or talk about the great document. these were foreigners. these were business people. some of them who have formal education, some who did not. they cared about the country. i think you need to have that today. i think that, you know, i go back to your book, you talk about the written and unwritten constitution. the unwritten constitution is that sort of trying to bring to apply it to current events and problems and cases, and developments and the debate continues on each one of those. and that's why you see the court go different ways. that's why the arguments -- [inaudible] that's why the scholarship is so important. one thing i like about the tone of the book. it's so positive. it's refreshing. you know, it's not i have all the answers. here
unemployment tax benefits for 2 million folks still unemployed. delay sequestration cuts for defense until later in the year. >> dave: john boehner on friday says he does not want to limit sequestration unless you also have equal spending cuts. there is no chance of finding an extra 500 billion in spending cuts. not as far as democrats stand. here is harry reid on where the senate democrats stand at the 11th hour. >> if we come up with something, it's not that easy, we are dealing with big numbers some of the stuff we do is very complicated. i think it was a very positive meeting. there was not a lot of hilarity in the meeting. everyone knows how important it is. it took an extended period of time as you know waiting for us. everybody, whatever we come up with, is going to be imperfect. some people aren't going to like it. some people like it less, but that's where we are. and i feel confident that we have an obligation to do the best we can and that was made very clear in the white house. we're going to do the best we can for the caucuses that we have and country that's waiting for us to
defense and social security and medicare. they will know which party is trying to destroy working democracy in order to pursue its political ends. they will know who respects the voter and who thumbs his nose at the voter. we go over this cliff and you will not have to ask for whom the bell tolls, it will be tolling for you. leading off tonight, josh green and chris frates of "national journal." you don't have to be as clear as i but try, gentlemen, tonight. it looks to me like one party, once again it's asymmetric. both parties are not screwing around, one is. is that true? >> i think both parties want to go over the cliff. >> both want to go over the cliff? who will get blamed? >> i think republicans will get blamed, but i think republicans at this point fear casting a career-threatening vote to raise taxes instead of waiting four days and letting the cliff -- >> and then they can technically say -- >> they're voting for a tax cut. >> do they presume the voters are that dumb? they think there's a difference? they might think that. >> they might. >> do they think the voters are t
that defensive line, the go line and, basically president obama cannot get in, and there is -- what we know is the republicans have agreed to increasing tax revenue but we need to have the spending cuts. if we don't get them under control, what will happen is, we are seeing consumer sentiment is done and businesses uncertain and the economy will stay sluggish and not grow. >> rick: richard, last word, 20 seconds. does the president move at all on entitlements and spending cuts republicans are demanding? >> my forecast is, we'll end up with increased taxes after january 1. for people making $500,000 and over and again, most republicans east see that as a cut and i think the president put spending cuts, medicare, medicaid, cuts, hasn't talked about it much and put them on the table and we will have one-to-one spending cuts, tax increase, that will satisfy pretty much everybody. >> rick: good to see you, merry christmas and happy new year to you both. thanks. >> thank you. >> jamie: it is almost always good news, this time of year, people get temporary jobs and actually the number of temporary
mate be good, but could december mate defense. and that's the real concern i have is that these cuts are almost arbitrarily 50-50 and the defense is not 50% of the budget, and they will drastically cut weapon systems and the deployment of our troops. >> i can understand that you would be concerned about that. in terms of this christmas break now that you are home and the president is in hawaii, but the president suggested it is a cooling off period for everyone. are you optimistic that next week things could change all of a sudden and a deal could happen? >> i am optimistic if we can get one done in the hour. people are far apart. many republicans feel they were elected under a pledge not to raise taxes no matter what. democrats were elected under a pledge that everyone over a quarter million dollars has to have their taxes locked in. once we come back, actually right now talks are going on right now i'm sure between the staffs of the speaker and the white house. it is not as if nothing has been done. if people want a deal they can have it. if not, it can be difficult. i say it is 50

more points of defense in a school than just one armed guard that would be very visible and if someone were maniacal enough to come and attack a school they'd probably take that guard out first and there are school districts around the country and one in texas where i've spoken with the superintendent northwest of dallas, and the whole state of utah permits concealed carry of teachers and it's worked out very well. these have not become targets because i think most of the criminal class understands that an armed victim is too dangerous to take on, if they can go some other way to do their crime. >> there are some assumptions there and that is, of course, the question of mental health. you're seeing those of this side like to commit a crime and they're aware of these limitations and these challenges and we just look at columbine as senator feinstein was saying yesterday in addressing mr. lapierre's comment and she was saying look at columbine, there were two armed guards there. that did not work. >> they fled, whereas if you are under attack and you have a gun then it's rather reasonabl

christmas to you. >> thank you for having me. >> clayton: defense cuts set to take place in the end of the year . president obama knows this and set to expire is the bush era tax cuts . what impact will this have on the military? >> it will have an across the board impactit sequestration is so bad. we'll get across the board training to maintenance and to the next weapon system and on base things provided for families and tri-care. it hits everything. secretary panetta called it a meat axe. our readiness will be stunted by sequestration . it is bad policy. >> clayton: republicans agreed to it. you agree and say this is never going to happen. because we will get this thing done . now eight days done. is it possible to go through with a fine tooth comb and pick through. senator sessions said the fiscal cliff is like three days away. we have to read it to sign off on it. >> that's the worst. no, this is not time. let's reform it and go about it with a squaple. meet axe hacks it across the board. either we are going off of the cliff or bad short-term deal that kicks the can down the roa
part of some last-second deal. hit the defense department. but the pentagon's real problem is not those cuts, but the ones that are going to be coming over the next decade. we talked to military contractors, top officials at the pentagon. they see a long period of downward decline. that after the war in afghanistan, there's going to be a period of austerity. they're calling it -- they have a term around the pentagon, a very graphic self-amputation as they cut back over the years. and this was one of the reasons that president obama had, at the top of his short list, the former republican senator, still a republican, chuck hagel of nebraska. he's somebody who's talked about the pentagon as being bloated, had very specific ideas about how to cut it. but mike, sam, the table, we're hearing that that trial balloon has been popped. that senator hagel has a possibility for secretary of defense, has really lost a lot of altitude. and what they discovered was, there's not a natural constituency for him. republicans, as you guys know, have fought with him over the years. he was against the war i
increase in the deficit, the problem is it is not finance the oil. either have to eliminate the defense department or eliminate all civilian employees. you would not able to administer all this regulation if you don't do something about spending. even with tax increases, the kind i described in the previous question, would not be enough. ineffective regulation. effective regulation can be quite beneficial. in the automobile sector, the mileage requirement, but permits everybody to strive to a higher mark, up chiselling on the mileage stickers on cars. it improves our energy efficiency. that's a good thing. that is spurring growth. but the kind of reforms we have on wall street have not solved the problem. look at what happened last week's at usb, not only wild and irresponsible behavior, but then we have attorney general holder determining that he general holderubs the fullest -- attorney general holders a betty cannot prosecute ubs because he is afraid ubs is too big to shut down and would destroy financial markets. i thought dodd-frank was supposed to fix that. what was so disconcerti
of the questions. in my defense -- [laughter] i would just like to say, whatever, okay? it was basic cable, all rights? you don't pay extra for cnn. [laughter] it is a somewhat more informed decision and that i thought the low would be overturned based on the oral arguments in part because of my experience, this is not a corporately plate a lot of devils advocate. they use oral argument, their questions to make their case to their colleagues. and during most of the argument that the five conservatives are very much leaning against the obama administration on the key arguments in the case, was just as the commerce clause of article i although congress to pass the individual mandate, which says the individuals have good health insurance. as i sat in court on june 28th in her chief justice roberts announce a decision in the case, i learned the answer to that question, which was no, it doesn't. the commerce clause does not allow the court, the congress to invoke an individual mandate. but then in a decision that stunned many people, but no one more than me, john roberts reached for a subsidiary arg

in defense spending potentially as well. talking $4 trillion -- we are talking $4 trillion in 10 years. they have to come back in 2013 and talked about changes to social security, medicare and address the debt ceiling. host: we have some comments from our facebook page. they reflect the frustration we are seeing. guest: after the election, we heard the president and top republicans say the election is behind us and we can get down to do in the country's business. they both pledged by partisanship. that evaporated within days. everyone is back in their corner blaming the other side and not making much progress at all. business is retrenching. families are holding back on spending. host: why is compromise so difficult? guest: the with the primary system works has carved out the bit.e kila little they get blown back much more quickly on ideas. they are both afraid of the outer wings of their party. it seems compromise is hard to reach. host: we are keeping our eyes on the stock market. the dow jones is down a little bit. headline from "the wall street journal." what impact does this have
face job loss and in some situations-- certainly in the department of defense-- but throughout the federal government people will be furloughed, forced to take unpaid days off, anywhere from 20 to 50 days. we really don't know. it depends in part on the agency and it depends in part on how much of the remainder of the fiscal year these cuts are squished into. so it's -- that's one bad situation. and then the so-called grand bargains and deals, many of those include provisions that would cut federal retirement benefits and extend the current pay freeze for an additional three years so that federal employees would go five full years without any paid a justments. >> ifill: hugh johnson, if you were an investor or a business owner and you're watching wall street watch the fiscal cliff debate what are you telling them? are people nervous? >> well, even though i think there's been some positive things unfolding-- and i think the most positive thing that's been unfolding is the fact that the markets have not collapsed desite this very significant risk that we could go off the cliff, w
into if you let the government default or whatever goes on this weekend, because basically defense spending will be cut and we'll have new payroll taxes and all tax rates will go up on income tax and estate taxes and all the bad stuff will happen, and how that's good politics. >> look, politicians are creatures of narrow self-interest. from the self-interested standpoint of a republican house member from a safe district who fears a primary challenge, yes, it's better for them to wait three days, cast -- go over the cliff, cast a vote to cut taxes and basically screw all the people who are going to be affected by it preserving their own jobs than it is to agree to a tax increase now and risk the wrath of the tea party right two years from now. >> chris, let me ask you about another possible, i hope it doesn't happen. next tuesday or next wednesday when the market reopens on january 2nd and they fully realize at that point that this cliff has been gone over and the congress has failed to meet its own targets which it set itself when it set this cliff up, who will pay the price if, say, the ma

are asking themselves which one will shoulder the blame if we goefr the cliff with tax hikes and defense cuts. >> i think those states that rely on the contractors are going to be equally unhappy with hee pub cans and democrats. they are going to ask why is it can't. >> the other aspect is the price of milk. because congress didn't pass a farm bill this year the strange system of supports from 1949 would go into effect that would praise t raids the price of milk there. may be some kind of a fix thif they can get a passed this year. congress realizes something like this just like the tax issue it affects about everyone. >> it can get to be a real expense for families with children. the top five stories making news at this hour. herbert norman swoerts could have schwarzkopf died of complications from membpneumoni. he drove sadam shhussein seas forces out of kuwait. george bush who approved the coalition approved the comment: schwarzkopf received numerous honors including three stars. >> did she or did she not force the head of the epa to resign. she resigned for new challenges and time with her

cake. >> he has been rumored as president obama's topic for defense secretary. chuck hagel is drawing serious criticism from both sides of the aisle for his views on israel, iraq and also gay rights. republican senator lindsay graham and joe lieberman predict a top confirmation process. chuck schumer also stopped short of endorsing him. a minnesota man narrowly escaped a helicopter crash. the experienced pilot was landing in his son's backyard that's when the chopter malfunctioned hit a trailer and caught on fire. the son got out and helped his dad. he survived with only minor injuries. >>> coming up next you have done all of your shopping. you have done the wrapping and the entertaining and of course the cooking now it is time to treat yourself. where should you go after the christmas madness? we have ideas for you. >> we know there are trials and tribulations that the griswolds went tlau to deck the halls. meet one family that could make clark griswold jealous. with the spark cash card from capital one, sven gets great rewards for his small business! how does this thing work? oh, i
in self-defense to kill their kidnappers, captain and mate of the ship. so the slave trade was no longer a slave trade. it is a kidnapping ring and therefore illegal. they made the slave trade illegal and was the first step in our movement towards emancipation and people began rallying around him as the southerners and house of representatives tried to shut him out as he pleaded for emancipation. that aroused northerners. the quakers at first and others who realized john quincy on this was a devout christian is that this goes against all fundamentals of christianity. patrick henry said the same thing and soon you have this abolition movement beginning to grow and grow. the more they try to silence john quincy adams, the more he spoke out. they passed a categorical, making it against the rules of the house to use the word slavery. anytime you trade the essay, the speaker of the house from tennessee to my future president polk city is out of order and southerners would shout them down saying order, order. so he started pulling out petitions from his constituents at first, but then over the
hegel, feeling it from the left and the right. the defense built up and every time he takes a twitter, he seems to take out chuck hegel. it was a process by which the president gets leaked out. >> two problems that are besetting chuck hegel. he is not the official nominee. there is not an official campaign structure to defend chuck hegel. he is taking it from all sides and twisting it in the left and the right and all people taking shots at him. the second problem is he's a man without a party. you end up hearing republicans who are not too fond of the fact that he supported barack obama in the presidential contest. chuck schumer on "meet the press" was noncommittal. he is a man without a structure and a man without a party. that's a very difficult place to be. >> the current gym of washington politics. >> thank you so much for joining us. appreciate it. the cliff gets closer and compromise gets further away. next, we are gaming out the option with two guys who are living and breathing this fight with me and the halls of congress. what this stalemate means for the rest of the to do li
know, looming tax increases, obviously the significant cut to defense and now you've got geithner describing where the debt ceiling is about to come into play december 31st. so you've got a pressurized situation that quite frankly is going to require some time to think through. so, you know, inge everybody is engaged here. but the problems are pretty significant. going back to this, remember when the speaker did that vote, he got over 90% of his conference behind him. the dynamic that exited here was that the democrats said we're going to make this a party line vote. if you can get it over the finish line with just republican votes, great. but you're not going to have any of ours. i think that goes to the dysfunctional nature of what we're dealing with and the amount of votes that are simply party line votes. >> i want to ask you, newt gingrich and bill clint job could not have been more different, yet they seemed to have a sort of common idea that they should come together to move the country forward. why do you think that's lacking so much between john boehner and president obam
ads put romney on defense for months. the president also got a lip fr lift from the supreme court. romney vowed to strike it down himself. >> i'm not one that's going to get rid of obama care. >> reporter: at number seven, gas. >> governor romney, do you feel that your gas has overshadowed your foreign trips? >> reporter: or in romney's case, his entire foreign trip where a campaign aide lashed out at reporters. a gaffe that went global. and then at number sick, the conventions were remembered less for the nominees and their running plates and more for -- >> what do you want me to tell romney? i can't tell him to do that. can't do that to himself. >> reporter: the warmup acts that stole the show. >> we believe that we're all in this together is a far better philosophy than you're on your own. >> reporter: number five, the september 11 attack in benghazi injected foreign policy into the race. >> justice will be done. >> reporter: a week later, the campaign shifted again to the hidden cram ra video of romney's comments on the 47% and an instant obama attack ad. number four, among th
number of protestant denominations in the united states provide a unique defense against tyranny? >> i would not say -- i was not referring to just the soviet union and nazi germany. communist china killed far more of those two tyrannies combined, with no christian heritage to speak of. there are serious scholars that makes serious arguments that there is something and luther's temperament that was germanic. he was no democrat. the more, the merrier. religious factions or alternative sources of social authority. what you want is a society in which the state does not monopolized social authority. >> you talked extensively about religion in the united states contributing to [inaudible] there is one particular force that think they can inflict their views on this country. they insist said it was the intention of the founding fathers to create a christian equivalent of iran, which i do not think is the case. just because you are religious, it does not make you write all the time. >> get in line with everybody else. with respect, i disagree with what you just said. the religious right, whic
of a twinkie defense to say that it is just a television show. >> as the moderator, i will make one comment. i grew up in the netherlands. there are 19 political parties. they used to buy time. interestingly, in the mid- 1970's, the show's the labor party showed was "all in the family." the more conservative party showed "m.a.s.h." you can never really understand how it is going to be manipulated by local agendas and parties. that was my experience crying not. let me ask a last question. aside from things that you have been directly involved with, is there a film or documentary or television show which you think is a great example of what hollywood can mean to public policy and politics? is there a singular documentary film, television show, which stands out to you? >> "mr. smith goes to washington." no matter what your politics are, i cannot imagine anyone watching that film not being somehow moved to have a voice. to be able to put a voice to experience and your point of view. i suppose that gets me every time. >> good choice. >> mine was "it's a wonderful life." it was a snapshot of an imag
really believed in to have a gun in your home for self-defense. it's where most of the mayors have been and most of the public. most of us were happy to have that fight over with to decide what regulations were reasonable. the nra is a $240 million-a-year organization. i think anybody who thought they were going to have a victory and go home was wrong. the way they've reacted is to push more and more extreme laws and legislatures throughout the country to whittle away at basically even the most commonsense restriction, like for example, a gun that barely pass add law and the governor vitoed it to carry guns in day cares and places of worship and schools. >> what do you think of the statement that the only way to substitute stop bad guys with goods is to have good guys with guns. >> for example, we had gop pollster man once not necessarily a fan. we had him go out and talk to nra members and gun owners and he found that 47% owners think everybody should get a background check before they buy a gun. that's not the case today. wayne pierre uses every penny he
who don't want to do anything as far as defense in the schools and i think we could regret that if there were another incident that might have been prevented. >> surely a big debate about that. under the plan each public school would designate one person to keep the gun in a secure, locked location. it would be a voluntary program. state law would need to be amended before that plan can move forward. >>> customers at starbucks this morning reacting to ceo howard schultz's plan telling workers in the washington, d.c., stores to write the words "come together" on coffee cups. >> "come together." a nice beatles quote there. i think it's kind of a cool idea, but i -- you know, i don't know that the politicians really care. >> i think it means that people are basically tired that congress can't come to a compromise or actually agree on anything, if we're talking about something as huge as sdp that's going to affect taxes that affect everybody else in the united states, it's indicative of the kind of deadlock that we're at in the system right now. >> it's all about the fiscal cli
